PERQUE Activated B12 Guard
Energy and endurance with B12 lozenges; safer hydroxocobalamin for superior absorption
PERQUE delivers B-12 in its superior, hydroxocobalamin activated form. This form is superior because it has the highest half-life of any other form that has been shown to raise B-12 serum levels. PERQUE designed this product to help remove toxins from the body and improve brain and nerve cell function. B-12 supplementation can stimulate the way the body uses fats, proteins and carbohydrates, which can result in increased energy.
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that can be found in various foods, including shellfish, eggs, meat and dairy products. It plays a vital role in DNA and protein synthesis. Nutritional deficiency is believed to be rare because the body stores several years’ worth of this vitamin in the liver; however, many people who have a B12 deficiency have trouble absorbing the vitamin. This is actually quite a common problem in the aging population. It is also of concern for those who have HIV or other immune deficiencies, and for those who do not eat meat and/or dairy (vegetarians and vegans).
B-12 Deficiency in Elders
It is unknown exactly how common this deficiency is in the population, but it is well documented that adults over 65 years of age are more likely to be deficient than younger people. If you only have a mild deficiency, you might not have any symptoms at all or they might be so mild that you won’t notice them. This is exactly why it is important to get a blood test to find out if you have appropriate levels of B12 in your blood. However, as the deficiency increases, you may begin to feel tired, weak and lightheaded. Your gums may bleed, and your tongue may be red and sore. You might often feel nauseous and you might start losing a good deal of weight. Others may notice your pale skin. You could begin to suffer from bowel-related problems like diarrhea or constipation, and you might feel sick to your stomach and lose weight.
PERQUE B12, because advanced deficiency can cause even more severe problems. If you suffer from extremely low serum levels of vitamin B12, you might start to feel numbness and tingling in your extremities, a loss of coordination and motor skills, depression and eventually dementia, which can lead to a complete loss of mental abilities. Fortunately, it is easy to maintain adequate B12 levels with supplementation, so you can avoid any of these symptoms. If you have trouble absorbing B12, visit your doctor so he or she may closely monitor your levels during the course of supplementation.*
